About Our Company...

"I formed Ellis Environmental Management in 1994 with a singular purpose: To combine the building knowledge of construction managers with the unique expertise of degreed industrial hygienists.

Our industrial hygienists provide field testing services that are detail-oriented and true to the required testing method. They work under the direction of a manager who is experienced in both building systems and construction management. In preparing for each new remedial or demolition project, we begin by building a base of information that is thorough; complete. We provide that information to bidding contractors in a way that is simple and easy to understand. Finally, we team with the awarded contractor to provide a final project that is efficient, safe, and cost-effective.

I’m personally pleased with the results, and immensely proud of this current Ellis team."

Client Testimonials

“I watched them as they did their sampling on our first project and was impressed.  They were thorough and took a common sense approach.  They don’t recommend some elaborate, overly expensive solution that wasn’t needed.  They are our primary environmental testing and consulting  vendor.”

~ Richard - Director Facilities and Sustainability

“We have found Ellis to always be professional and thorough.  As property managers we aren’t technical people and they’ve always been good at explaining things; what the different levels of toxicity mean, for example.  They’ve never left us in the dark; step by step they always let us know what they are doing.” 

~ Debra - Commercial Property Manager

“I have found Ellis to be very professional, they meet their commitments, they communicate, I think their prices are reasonable and you don’t have to babysit them.”

~ Trey - Commercial Facilities Manager
